MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- The public can get a sneak peak at renovation of the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis.
There will be a public meeting Tuesday night to show final designs plans for new exhibits, visitor amenities and public spaces. It's the first major renovation of the museum, at the site of the old Lorraine Motel. Construction on the $27 million project is to begin in November.
The museum is where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in 1968.
